According to the Court’s Decision an environmental impact assessment should be made for the ongoing condition of the wreckage along with a study of the corrosion evolution process and a provision of the hull’s endurance should be estimated. The wreckage was sounded out, surveyed thoroughly by means of a ROV device immersed ad hoc. Extended videos and photo shots were taken and the exact position of the vessel depicted analytically on a sea contour depth chart. Hull corrosion, sea column & sea bottom sediment sampling carried out for the analysis of hazardous compounds PAHs, TPHs, PCBs and heavy metals in June and July of 2019. Fish and oyster tissues were analyzed in the lab for heavy metals’ detection. A great concern was given for (Cd) & (Pb) concentration in sea column nearby wreck. Α report of about 1,000 pages of the methodology & results was handed over to the Appeal Court of which merely partial significant segments are presented herein.
